The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals. Under the carefully mascara'd eye of adjudicator George Peach, all events conspire hilariously against them.


The Farndale series of plays have received something of a cult following amongst amateur dramatic societies, and it is easy to see why, as the audience is given a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the true battles facing the cast and crew in getting a production from page to stage.

We shall never know how the ladies of Farndale Avenue reached the finals of their drama festival, but we throw ourselves enthusiastically into their shambolic production of Macbeth, with last minute changes of cast, witches in wheelchairs, missing props, too many props and much more.  What else could possibly go wrong?
